Product Description

Amazon.ca

System of a Down's sophomore effort is a musically and lyrically ambitious 14-song collection that's even more left-of-center and powerful than their 1998 self-titled debut. Here the Los Angeles-bred foursome tackle everything from government ("Prison Song") to cocaine-crazed groupies ("Psycho") in a more pointed and aggressive manner than Rage Against the Machine. Serj Tankian's hardcore vocals and occasional Middle Eastern flourishes ("Science") contribute to the unique, ultra-intense, and quirky qualities of System circa 2001. Unexpected time changes and death-metal-like intensity give way to mellower moments, all of which make for demanding but irresistible listening. Toxicity is a masterful, unusual, and forceful opus. This release includes a bonus CD-ROM that includes behind-the-scenes footage, band commentary, and concert clips. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCKED ARSE!!! Dec 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
(Although I realize my review is like way late.)Ok here it is plain and straight. My review may be harsh, or brash, but I just put things as I see, or feel them. System of a Down's release of Toxicity was one of the best things to hit the cd industry in quite some time ... I mean hell, I can't even really think of something that meets it in the aspect of genre. This cd is PACKED full of energy, thought, and movement. I find this album to be far more challenging than many of your typical "main-stream" cd's and I just hope that they continue in their unique paths. Also before I close I must say that, I saw someone earlier trying to bring System of a Down into semantecs in aspect of their songs, and meanings, the companies/persons I would be refering to would be "A Reviewer: A customer from Tucson, AZ. U.S.A. July 5, 2002" ... wondering what "Pogo" meant and so-forth. I mean no embarrassment, dismaye, or harm to them. I just wished to state that, If you can't understand it just construe it to mean what you will it to mean, until you can actually figure it's meaning for with time it WILL come to you. It comes to some easier than it comes to others. I just would rather it be interpreted wrong in private, before wrong in public and with that I bid all ado for now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toxicity: A must for rock and power rock fans July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
Most people wouldn't call Toxicity Heavy Metal, because it certainly doesn't sound like it. But if you like Metal, Power Rock, any kind of Rock (except for light rock) then you will like System of a Down's Toxicity.
Prison Song: 91/100
-This song is louder than most songs on this album, and it is hilarious. "I buy my crack, I smack my bitch right here in hollywood!" It's a very political song.
Needles: 87/100
-A very funny song, about a tapeworm controlling him. Listen closer: it's actually about Heroine. Very good song, but it can be a little loud.
Deer Dance: 100/100
-Probably the best song on this album. Another political song. This has a great chorus and a fantastic beat, you should buy the album just for this song.
Jet Pilot: 88/100
-The chorus is pretty good, and this song has a fantastic beat (most SOAD songs do), but it is very loud, and it is repetitive.
X: 88/100
-This is the most repetitive song on the album, and one of the shortest too, clocking under 2 minutes. It has a nice beat, and nice vocals.
Chop Suey!: 95/100
-Most of you probably heard this song already. And yes, it is fantastic. Probably one of the best on the whole album. go to WWW.SYSTEMOFADOWN.COM to watch the video: you'll get a kick outta it.
Bounce: 72/100
-This is not that good of a song. It's just plain stupid. BOUNCE! POGO POGO POGO! But it is funny if you listen. It isn't worth more than 2 listens.
Forest: 74/100
-Like Bounce, this song is stupid. "WALK WITH ME MY LITTLE FRIEND!!!" Pretty much avoid this song as well. But the beat is great.
Atwa: 81/100
-This song is very emotional, and one of the lighter songs on the album. I like it, but it's far from the best track.

By John
Format:Audio CD
Ok. This is the greatest album of this decade. It's original and it rocks. That's a bold statement. You have to ask your self certain questions when you come to that conclusion. For example:
Does "Prison Song" rule?----YES
Could "Needles" kick Gary Coleman in the teeth?---YES
Is "Deer Dance" gay?---NO
Does "Jet Pilot" incite riots?---YES
Is "X" a short title for a song?---YES
Could "Chop Suey" make you think twice about recycling?--YES
Does "Bounce" sound like the perfect song to mosh to?--YES
Will "Forest" change your life?---YES
Is "Atwa" amazing?---YES
Could "Science" make you look at your sister differently?--NO
Does "Shimmy" make you want to dance?--YES
Is "Toxicity" title track from the album?---YES
Will "Psycho" make you straight edge?---YES
Do they play "Aerials" on the radio?-- YES
So in short, buy this record, I absolutely guarentee you'll agree with me when i say that this is the best of the decade so far. (I however can't guarentee that i spelled guarentee correctly.)

To have any level of credibility as a 'music critic' you need not only an ear, but enough upstairs to properly analyze what the ear absorbs. Read more

First of all SOAD rules. Mesmerize/Hypnotise are their more mellow works but in my opinion the best. Toxicity had me hooked the first time I listened to it. Read more
